Witchsorrow Bring the Doom With New Song 'Demons of the Mind' + Announce New Album 'Hexenhammer'





Hampshire doom metal maniacs Witchsorrow are due to release their fourth studio album, Hexenhammer, on May 25th via Candlelight Records.

Written during a hermetic period following an intense run of live shows, and recorded at Skyhammer studio in Cheshire with long-time co-conspirator Chris Fielding (Conan, Primordial, Electric Wizard), and mastered at the legendary Orgone studios by Jaime ‘Gomez’ Arellano(Ghost, Paradise Lost), the seven featured songs find Witchsorrow continuing to explore the darker corners of doom, illuminating them with the blinding light of sheer heavy metal forged of the strongest steel. It’s an almost anthemic soundtrack to the end of the world lyrics…

“I’ve always been obsessed with the end of the world,” explains vocalist / guitarist Necroskull. “On previous albums I’ve been wanting it to happen, because I was caught in a very dark place. On ‘No Light, Only Fire’ I was almost angry that it hadn’t happened. Now, it’s a massively confusing time where we’re basically staring at it and waiting for it. I have no solutions. There are none to be had.”

If 2018 needs a soundtrack to its madness, Witchsorrow have provided it. Heavier, darker, doomier, and more metal than ever before, with a title relating to ‘Malleus Maleficarum’ (‘The Hammer of Witches’), a famous 15th Century treatise, perfectly captured in the artwork by legendary Italian metal artist Paolo Girardi (Diocletian, Inquisition, Bell Witch), one of doom’s leading lights have made the perfect album for our times.
